that followed the controversial parliamentary elections of 2011. americans have had to fight to safeguard and extend the right to vote as well. when i was growing up in illinois, the youth minister from our church took a few of us into chicago on a cold january night to hear dr. martin luther king speak. afterwards, i stood in a long line to shake his hand and thank him for his work. i was a senior in high school in march of 1965, sitting in front of our black-and-white television set, when president johnson made his historical call for passage of the voting rights act. his first words were, "i speak tonight for the dignity of man and the destiny of democracy." in 1972, the democratic national committee sent me to register eligible voters in the rio grande valley in texas. some of the people were understandably wary of a blonde girl from chicago who do not speak a word of spanish, or texan for that matter. [laughter] but the law belonged to them as much as to me. they wanted to vote. we have made real progress since those days. but we still have deep flaws in our electoral system. between

the republicans won over state governments in the 2010 elections, we have watched the gop in state after state move to limit voting rights in ways that disproportionately affect african-american voters. so it was of particular interest to us yesterday when senator rand paul of kentucky told a louisville-based npr station, "i don't think there's objective evidence that we're precluding african-americans from voting any longer." paul's comments came in the wake of new voting restrictions such as the latest and most sweeping law coming out of north carolina, which now requires a government-issued id to vote, cuts early voting by a week, eliminates same-day registration, and kills the state-wide voter registration drive. texas, virginia, florida, and pennsylvania have all passed similar strict voter i.d. laws, some of which are tangled up in the court system, but if they prevail could indirectly disenfranchise minority voters. this is what paul had to say about voter id when he spoke at howard university, a historically black college back in april of this year. >> i think if you liken using a driv

on the national debt. so that limits our political options that we can have through our elected representatives as a free people. i think there are three major things that need to happen before we can start looking at rolling some of this back. the first is we need to have a limited government political party. right now the republican party has been a rhetorically pro-limited government party, and there are -- i note in my book -- periods where the relin party has lived up to this rhetoric. the three historical periods i note are during the truman administration what they called the do-nothing congress under robert taft, the congress that came in with ronald reagan when he was elected in 1980 and the first year or two of the gingrich congress that came in in 1994. most of you are a little younger than me or quite a bit younger than me, but i always used to joke, you know, the knack had one good album, and the gingrich congress really only had two good years when it came to actually trying to cut government spending. but we need, if we're going to actually have limited government in this country
